This story is over

A family firm near Stamford is celebrating 20 years as one of the country’s leading limestone suppliers.

Stamford Stone Company operates Clipsham Medwell and Greetham Quarries, both on the Lincolnshire limestone belt.

Launched in 1997 by local builder Ivor Crowson and stone merchant George Wilson, the company is now in its second generation with George’s children Daniel Wilson and Laura Green running the business from their head office at Swaddywell Quarry in Helpston.

Over time, the product range has expanded to offer a range of limestone construction products to contractors nationwide.

They have also branched out into interiors, selling stone directly to the public for fireplaces, flooring, staircases and garden landscaping.

The company recently provided the stone for a war memorial honouring military personnel who served in the Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan, which was unveiled by the Queen.

Ongoing projects include the restoration of the Houses of Parliament, renovation of the Cambridge Arms Hotel, the new orangery at Grade I listed Rushton Hall in Northamptonshire, and new development and restoration of historic colleges at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

Laura Green, director of marketing said: “As a family we’re celebrating 20 years of successful ownership and are proud to have grown the business over two decades.”
